ROBBO ON THE BLUES

Paul Robinson agrees with the general consensus that Birmingham City have too much quality to be scrapping to save their Premiership status.

Paul Robinson agrees with the general consensus that Birmingham City have too much quality to be scrapping to save their Premiership status.

Steve Bruce has the likes of Kenny Cunningham, Mario Melchiot, David Dunn, Nicky Butt, Jermaine Pennant, Emile Heskey, Chris Sutton and Mikael Forssell to call on but injuries have wrecked their campaign.

We travel to St Andrews with the Blues third from bottom and three points behind West Brom – the teams drew 1-1 last weekend.

"They are fighting for their lives and it’s not easy when you are down there so hopefully we’ll grab a couple of early goals and take the wind out of their sails," said Robbo, who experienced exactly what City are going through with Leeds two seasons ago.

"I’m sure they would have wanted to beat West Brom last week and would have seen that as a had a disappointing result.

"They have some quality players and it’s difficult to see why they are down there but things tend not to go for you and that’s what happens."
